I have a friend with a Galaxy Note that somehow got his to mount both his 
SD card and the built-in storage using adb. The problem is he cannot remember
what he did. That fone also uses MTP. I was hoping that I can find the magic
incantation to be able to do the same thing with my Note 2.

Thanks for the suggestions. I had not thought of going that way. The more I
think about this, the better I like it. I have some automated scripts I use
to back up some of my data via rsync. The SSHDroid seems like it would work
for that and maybe allow me to run my scripts via a cron job and not have to
worry about being connected to a wire. WiFi Explorer looks good also.
Hard to go wrong for $.99. :-)
